DominionTheology

I keep stumbling over those words "Dominion Theology" and have read a few pieces that may be of interest. I'm posting a few links here and hope some will take the time read and comment in my absence. The first is a good recent piece from Harpers that only touches on Dominion towards the end, two of the other three are more scholarly. Sentiments, please - how real is this?

Dobson and Robertson are working hard to get fundamentalists into elected office everywhere in the country, and they are succeeding. Listen to Christian talk radio, and you hear about this push all the time. Right now they are very concerned about upcoming vacancies on the Supreme Court.

The question I have is how pure are the fundamentalists' motives? I'm sure I don't know, but even if their motives are completely pure, how hard would it be for the dominionists with selfish motives to persuade these elected fundamentalists to pass legislation that supports that agenda?

I don't know how pervasive or real this is, but as Jesus said, "Beware the yeast of the Pharisees." It only takes a little bit to get the job done.

I reiterate:

When those on the left talk about the "danger" of Christian
Reconstruction, really they are resisting the right of a free people
to practice religion and form Christian associations that will work
to better the society and lessen the intrusion of the federal
government into our lives.

Jay -

For those that would prefer not to have a theocratic government in the United States it is less a matter of "resisting the right of a free people to practice religion ... etc," than it is of realizing that your so called "Christian Reconstructionists" are being very successful in their goal of placing many candidates and judges. With that knowledge, and with the desire for religious and personal freedom to remain integral to American doctrine, the theocrats need to be ousted.

If you have an issue with "Federal intrusion in (your) lives" you may want to stop using all government services - no air control, no freeways, no homeland security and no military. No FDA, no DEA, no CIA, no FBI. No Supreme Court, no President, no senate nor house. This federal government has done great things and will continue to. The questions are: what will be done, at what cost, and who will pay? And the greater question for every American to ask themselves is: Whatever it is that we as a people are buying in the name of America - how much of what we are buying is being sold by the folks that made all those donations to the politicians?

Theocratic goernment should bother everyone. Does anyone really want the US to be like Iran? I sure don't Who gets to decide which version of chritianity we go with? Cahtolicism? Baptist? Methodist? Anglican? I think our founding fathers who understood well about religious persecution were right. Keep government and religion seperate or you will lose both.
